ASTM Standards for Inflatables


ASTM International has established safety standards for inflatable amusement devices, including inflatable bounce houses. These standards are known as the ASTM standard.


The ASTM standard specifies safety requirements for design, manufacturing, testing, labeling, and use of inflatable amusement devices, including bounce houses. The standard covers a range of safety features such as the use of safety nets, adequate anchoring and tie-down points, and proper inflation and deflation characteristics. 


Hero Kiddo inflatable products are ASTM compliant because this is a safety standard that sets requirements and guidelines for inflatable play devices. Compliance with this standard ensures that the inflatable product has undergone rigorous testing and meets the necessary safety requirements to prevent accidents and injuries during use.


The ASTM standard covers a range of requirements, including structural design, materials, and performance testing. It is designed to reduce the risk of injury to children by addressing potential hazards such as entrapment, impact hazards, and instability.


By complying with this standard, Hero Kiddo is demonstrating its commitment to providing safe and high-quality inflatable products for children. It is important to always check that an inflatable product is ASTM compliant before purchasing and using it to ensure the safety of your child.
